The Cleveland Browns own the No. 8 pick in the first round of tomorrow’s NFL Draft, but could be in line to make yet another deal after shipping the No. 2 pick to the Philadelphia Eagles. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Browns’ front office has been talking to teams behind them who are interested in Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott about a possible trade.

Elliott has proven to be one of the most intriguing prospects in this year’s draft class, with the Dallas Cowboys having expressed interest in taking him with the No. 4 pick and there are a number of teams after the Browns, namely the Miami Dolphins at No. 13, that could use help at running back.
But that all depends on Cleveland’s asking price, as a Top 10 pick is sure to command quite the return. No deals appear imminent now but with the draft happening tomorrow, be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this story!
